As you all know ACB is a family, many of us share a special bond that reaches beyond game day. We have a young member we would like to pay tribute too at our game vs. Real Salt Lake. Hayden is one of the strongest, toughest members ACB has seen yet.
This is Hayden’s story:
At 18 months old, Hayden was diagnosed with Acute Promyelocytic Leukemia. Hayden recently celebrated his 10th birthday in March. He has been in remission for almost 7 years. Late last March a regularly scheduled blood test indicated he may have the Leukemia again. A bone marrow biopsy shortly after confirmed the APML had returned. Hayden went through a 14 week period of daily Arsenic Trioxide infusions to get his blood back into remission. On August 16 he underwent a bone marrow transplant. He is currently being treated in the oncology intensive care unit. The road to recovery will be a long one for Hayden. The nurses and doctors are taking very good care of Hayden, but he misses everything outside of this place. It puts a smile on his face when he hears from his friends who can’t wait to see him again. Hayden loves soccer! He loves to play, train, and watch soccer. If he isn’t playing or watching soccer, chances are he’s still thinking about soccer.
We ask all of our members to join us on October 1st as “Hayden City Brigade”. Our goal for the night is to bring Hayden and his family joy and give them our full 90 with some revised chants made for Hayden.
Please sign up to his care page to send him and his family your well wishes and encouragement!
VAMOS ANGELINOS! WE ALL CHEER, WE ALL CHEER FOR HAYDEN!
